What can I say about Jaws that hasn't been said already? Not much really, but I can guarantee that you have never seen Jaws the way you will see it when watching this. This has to be the best looking transfer ever done and if you are as big a fan of this 1975 blockbuster as I am, then you will also appreciate the work that has gone into this blu ray.
Well, Jaws is a revered classic that obviously needs no introduction. All I will say is that the Blu-ray transfer is stunning - the print is spotless, sharp (sound is excellent also) and a great example of how an older title can look if given due care and attention when being digitally restored. Up there with the Bond film transfers. I haven't been through the extras yet but there are plenty to sink your teeth into! Buy without hesitation.
My favourite film has never looked better (I have the 25th and 30th anniversary DVDs). The restoration is sublime (but maintains the original film grain very nicely) and the film overall looks like a period piece made in about 2005 instead of 1975. There are (cough) times when the shark (cough cough the boat jump near the finale) doesn't look particularly good. But the menace of the shark exists in our minds really so when we do see it and it looks a bit dodgy it's actually slightly more disturbing than a realistic looking shark. So yes, the picture is amazing. Top marks. Sound has been overhauled again (this happened for the previous DVD releases) and somehow the new 7.1 remix is even better. Dialogue, effects steering and John William's aggressive musical score are all placed perfectly around the room. It's also great that the original Oscar winning mono soundtrack has been preserved and is also included. Extras are exhaustive and, short of reading every book and website about the film, the documentaries included on this blu ray will give you a thorough and comprehensive insight into the difficult birth of Jaws. I was in Jaws heaven for the near two hour running time of "The Shark is Still Working". Sadly many of the main players are no longer with us but what a legacy this film has been for all involved. Ultimately, this is the film which launched the career of an especially talented 27 year old guy called "Steve" Spielberg. His fine touch for tension and shocks was evident even at this young age. I'll never forget the first time I watched Matt Hooper go under the water at night to inspect Ben Gardner's boat. Pretty much a masterpiece.
